I would like to take the opportunity to once again cast my vote for a multithreaded Celestia, so I could take advantage of my new quad core. :wink:

Cheers,

More than that, I'd like the possibility to use it in a render-farm in a networked environment, so I could take advantage of N x quad core's. :wink:

That's already the case in Render Path Opengl 2.0.

Wouldn't be welcomed to have inside script menu a command to cancel the script like escape on keyboard does?

Hello fox,

I'm not a scientist or any type of specialist, but since I found your galaxy I keep looking for information, and I have watched a documentary last day that explained that the moon is about 2 cm further away from his orbit each year... witch is not much really, but it counts after a few decades I suppose, they were also saying that the moon was very close to earth millions years ago, and of course, rotation and all were diffrent...

This is probably too much to add on a future release of celestia as if I understand (I'm very useless with computers!) it's a lot of calculation and parameters to add, but I was wondering if you thought about that?
